Check out our Chapter 3 Episode 1 walkthrough for Life Is Strange. Max’s incredible adventure has just begun, but she already faces difficult decisions.

When you arrive, speak with Victoria. She won’t let you in, so you must devise a plan to get her out of the way. Go left and find a small closet door. You can turn on the water sprinklers from there when the time is right. Return to Victoria and interact with the paint bucket. When the janitor takes the bucket upstairs, go to the water sprinklers and turn them on.

Once you reach the dormitory, you’ll see Victoria covered in paint and face a choice:

  • MAKE FUN OF – Mock her and take a photo (as she did to you)
  • COMFORT HER – Make her feel better

Your choice will have significant consequences in the future.

Explore the hall when you arrive at the dormitory. Head to the end and turn right to reach your room. You can interact with some objects in the room to get Max’s comments. To advance the plot, use the yellow card (next to the laptop) on the desk. You’ll learn that your friend has your flash drive. Go to the main door, where you’ll find Juliet. She has locked up your friend, who took your flash drive. You must help her. Juliet was accused of “sexting” with Victoria’s boyfriend, and Victoria was the one who informed her. To clear Dany’s name, you must find evidence in Victoria’s room.

When you get to Victoria’s room, look to the right to see some pictures of her. If you want access to all of the pictures in the journal, mix them and capture the moment. You’ll find evidence of Dany’s innocence on Victoria’s laptop. Print the email and take it with you. Return to Juliet and select Juliet – E-mail to give her the document.

When you get to Dany’s room, you can talk to her.

1.) Victoria is not nice

2.) Juliet gets her rage on

1.) He’s a good guy

2.) What do you mean?

Once you finish your conversation, remove the USB from your laptop. With the flash drive in hand, head to the parking lot where Warren is waiting for you. Exiting the dormitory, you’ll spot Alyssa sitting on a bench and Logan throwing a ball at her. If you want to help Alyssa, approach her, travel back in time to the beginning of the event, and warn her (Alyssa – Warn). You can also capture a photo of Logan breaking the windowpane for your journal by going to the broken windowpane (Window – Photo). After that, head to the gate where you’ll witness a disturbing scene involving Kate and a security guard. You can choose to intervene (Intervene) or take a photo before heading towards the steps leading to the parking lot.
